Antonio Daniels had a season-high 16 points, and Butler hit a career-high five 3-pointers for the Wizards, who ended a two-game losing streak and snapped a streak of five straight defeats in Dallas.

NEW YORK (AP) - Stephon Marbury scored a season-high 28 points and Zach Randolph added 25 points and 14 rebounds for New York.
Jamal Crawford had 22 points for the Knicks, who have won two in a row following an eight-game skid. Randolph, who grabbed a huge offensive rebound in the final seconds, has eight double-doubles in the 10 games he has played this season.
Carlos Boozer scored 16 of his 30 points in the fourth quarter, but the Jazz had their three-game winning streak snapped. Deron Williams added 26 points and eight assists for Utah, which played Sunday in Detroit and seemed a step slow on defense, allowing the Knicks to shoot 53 percent from the field.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Marko Jaric scored 21 points and Minnesota got its second victory of the season.
Sebastian Telfair scored 20 points for the Timberwolves, while fellow reserve Antoine Walker scored 17, hitting three 3-pointers and following his own miss for a key basket with 1:04 to go to stifle New Orleans' last-gasp rally.
Al Jefferson added 14 points for Minnesota (2-10), which led by double digits for most of the game and won its first road game of the season.
Chris Paul scored 31 points to lead New Orleans, which never led and had trouble shooting for most of the first three quarters. Peja Stojakovic scored 17 and Bobby Jackson 14.
Minnesota shot 52 percent from the field and hit eight 3-pointers, while the Hornets hit only 41.9 percent of their shots, going 7-of-22 from long range.
